August this year was all sorts of awesome. It’s both Greg’s birth month and our “anniversary” month so we always have a lot of reason to celebrate, but this year it was especially great for multitude of reasons. :) Makeup-wise it was a very simple. I went for very clean and soft looks with emphasis on the skin and lips. And when I say emphasis on the lips I don’t mean bold colours, I mean lipgloss for that plump and full effect. I’ve only got three things to show you because… well, I only have three favourites. Simple as that I suppose! :)
1. Guerlain Meteorites Illuminating Powder (Teint Beige 02) – My Meteorites seem to hibernate during the summer and come out towards what people in the West experience as “fall.” We don’t get that over here, but it is getting a little bit cooler now (thank goodness) and I love the extra glow that Meteorites provide. I use this brushed very lightly all over my face and I swear it makes me look like I’ve been airbrushed. It’s soft and natural and just using the product is a luxurious experience in itself. The tin is exquisite, the multicoloured pastel pearls smell of jasmine, and they sort of jiggle around softly when I swirl a brush into them… the powder kicks up a bit and you can see the shimmery bits (which never translate badly onto the skin)… ahh, what a lush product. Eyeing a pressed compact version for my next splurge. Either that or another eyeshadow palette! I love me some Guerlain.
